safer under strong men and dictators? >> what you see in the middle east in syria and iraq, is a fear of the unknown. that is alfear that is felt by the society at large. is it by no means specific to christians themselves. but there is a pronounced notion in countries that i mentioned that they stand to suffer in a time of chaos and uncertainty. you are hearing in syria right now where the same arguments for a negative legitimacy. we don't know who is going to protect us and we don't know where we are going to find safeguards. the same sentiments you are hearing today are the same as in iraq back in 2002 or before the invasion in march of 2003. there is a fear of the unknown. we have seen it manifested in a lot of ways by emigration. people have left not willing to deal with what the aftermath might bring. >> there are sizable christian communities in arab countries 10% in egypt. 5% in syria. a third in lebanon but a smaller population to begin with. how have these people fared you should the arab spring? >> if you like historically at what christian arabs represented to the region i
